The Seattle Seahawks could be on the lookout for additional help at the tight end position after veteran Anthony McCoy suffered a torn left Achilles tendon on Tuesday.

While the team isn’t pursuing Jermichael Finley, the team did bring in another veteran tight end for a workout this week.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com, the Seahawks brought in Steve Maneri for a workout on Thursday.

Maneri is a former offensive tackle that was converted to a tight end by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2012. In five years, Maneri has played for the Houston Texans, New England Patriots, Chiefs, Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Maneri was released by the Buccaneers in May. With his former offensive line background, Maneri is a proficient blocker at the tight end position. Behind starter Zach Miller, the rest of Seattle’s current tight end group is far more proficient as pass catchers than blocking options.

Maneri has six receptions for 51 yards in 23 career games.

    Seattle’s best “third TE” is an young second year OT named Alvin Bailey. He did an excellent job closing the year and in the playoffs.

    If my eye balls aren’t looking through homer lenses I see Luke Willson breaking out this year.

    Still, there is something wrong if this guys been on this many teams, in this amount of time, and when you have numbers like that, geez. What can you say, its like Rocky to the promoter, ‘I’ll make a really good sparring partner to Creed, I wont take no cheapshots’. These are the Heavyweight Champions of the World we’re talking about.

    If Finley is cleared medically why wouldn’t they look at him??? He’s clearly a more dynamic option, and wouldn’t cost much on a 1 year deal. They were interested in him just a few months ago
